Hosni Mubarak for sale on eBay

UPDATE: eBay has removed the listing without explanation.

Have you been searching long and hard for an experienced puppet to run your corrupt regime?

If so, a clever chap by the name of Joseph has placed reviled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak up for sale on eBay.

How long this protest/fundraiser/artwork lasts before eBay shuts it down remains to be seen, but my guess is that eBay will quietly look the other direction. After all, Mubarak has shown he’s no friend of the internet.

At the time of writing, the leading bid was a whopping US$3.38. Let’s hope Hosni’s trade value rises soon — all proceeds from the auction will be donated to Oxfam.
